Thank you to all at Hotel Estherea, we have had terrific time here. Value for money, with lots of luxury and staff that go out of their way to help, warm & friendly. Highly recommend you should give it a try! Great location. Would love to stay again.

Room Tip: Great view of the canal from the front, but we also had one in the middle overlooking courtyard stil...

Here's what we liked: location great, decor very nice, coffee/beverages/snacks were good, our room 310 was well-furnished, bed comfortable, canal views great, hotel itself has a lot of character, library, dining room, bar very special. Here's what we didn't like: air temperature controls unresponsive and created cold draft in seating area, louvered doors to bathroom compromised privacy.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the Hotel Estherea at the end of May. It was our second time at the hotel and it did not disappoint. The hotel is perfectly located within a short walk to most major attractions. The room is small yet perfectly appointed. What makes the Hotel Estherea a stand out though is the wonderful front of house staff. They are warm and welcoming and eager to help you with all your needs. They helped set my husband and I up on their rental Vespa for the day and pointed out some place just outside Amsterdam to go to. This was a perfect stop at the beginning of our trip.

This was our second stay in the hotel, and just as enjoyable as last time. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was nice and cool, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. The room we booked was a little larger than last time as we booked a deluxe for a special birthday. Would visit again even in a smaller room. Reliably worth the money.

The hotel is lovely, the staff extraordinarily helpful and knowledgeable, the situation in Amsterdam perfect for sightseeing and for food, the view stunning but the room was too small to " swing a cat". We adjusted but only just.

There is always some apprehension about checking into a hotel that you find online but one of our group discovered she had a friend who had stayed here and with additional input from tripadvisor we decided to go for it. The outside of the hotel hides what is behind the front door. We were pleasantly surprised. Our room was quite large with what seemed to be a newly renovated bathroom. The only complaint, and not really one, just a bit awkward, was that the toilet was in a room on its own. This meant that you had to come out a door take two steps and open the bathroom door to wash your hands. Not too sure why they just did not open up the wall between the two. The age of the building may have had something to do with it. That being said, the rest of the room was comfortable and well done. Over all the hotel were fantastic, the staff we encountered were all gracious and helpful. I will definitely recommend it.

This property is well located and within easy access to most things on offer in Amsterdam. The hotel is quirky with its interesting decor and offers larger than usual, well equipped rooms. The staff are exceptional, with service levels of the highest standard.

We stayed two nights, with another couple, prior to our cruise and we would not hesitate to return.
